Moria Fire: Emergency Response
Away from our normal, on September 8th, 2020, a fire razed Moria Camp, leaving 12.000 refugees homeless. Over the course of two weeks, thousands of people lived in the roads and in the adjacent olive groves, day and night, without anything but the few possessions they could grab before fleeing the camp.
Grassroots organizations took a stand for refugees, supporting in any way needed while the authorities and the UN were discussing next steps.
Connect by Music partnered with Home for All to support covering the emergency at its most primary level. For two weeks, the Lesvos team helped Home for All with food distribution. Every day, the team prepared food packs at their premises and then distributed them around the roads and olive groves with a van, stopping at any necessary location in coordination with other actors. We also distributed diapers for mothers with small babies and toddlers.
